GEORGE AARON SCOTT AND ANNA SARAH SMITH FAMILY & DESCENDANTS

-- INTRODUCTION --

            This research contains information about George Aaron Scott and Anna Sarah Smith’s family and their descendants.  George was the fifth born child of George Shindler Scott (1822 – 1888) and Mary Hey (1826 – 1906). George Shindler and Mary (Hey) Scott’s extended family and descendants were included in the CD/DVD document entitled “Moses Scott, 1789.”  George Shindler Scott was the son of Moses Scott (1789 – 1850) and Elizabeth Shindler (1790 – 1864).  Moses Scott was the son of Robert Scott (1760 – 1824) and Winifred Green (about 1760 – about 1802).

            You should be aware that each descendant has been assigned a unique Arabic identification (ID) number, such as 5, 5.10, 5.20.11, etc., and when a plus sign has appeared before the ID number and name in a list of children, the plus sign ( + ) signifies that an additional entry for that person will be found in the next generation section, containing more information about that individual and his or her family.  In making a list of children’s names, Roman numerals (lower case) were used to record the order of birth.

            Some examples:                                                                                                                                                                                           + 5.11               i.      Cynthia3 Ann Scott, born 3 July 1822, Washington County, Indiana

              + 5.12                ii.      Polly3 Ann Scott, born about 1827, Washington County, Indiana

                 5.13               iii.      Robert3 M. G. Scott, born in late 1828, Washington County, Indiana

         + 9.14.18                ii.      Elga6 M. Mahurin, born 1928, Short Bend, Dent County, Missouri

            A superscript italic Arabic number following the given name tells how many generations this individual is from the progenitor. Placed within parentheses, these names (beginning with the father of the individual) trace the lineage back to the progenitor.

            Some examples:

          Polly3 Ann Scott (Dorris2, Robert1)

                        (The superscript 3 following Polly’s name indicates that within this research paper Polly belongs to the third generation, Dorris belongs to the 2nd generation as Polly’s father and, Robert belongs to the first generation as Dorris’ father.)

            Martin4 Preston Mahurin (Cynthia3, Dorris2, Robert1)

                        (Robert Scott, first generation with superscript 1; Dorris Scott, second generation with superscript 2; Cynthia, child of Dorris, is third generation and her son, Martin Preston Mahurin, is fourth generation with superscript 4 following his given name.)

            Jackie6  “Jack” Arlen Scott (Carmel5, Francis4, William3, Dorris2, Robert1)

            These numbers have no intrinsic meaning except to help organize and present this research.  Individual numbers can be added and revised many times as more and more names are discovered by others and added to this document.

 GEORGE AARON SCOTT AND ANNA SARAH SMITH

FAMILY & DESCENDANTS

FIRST GENERATION IN AMERICA was Robert Scott and wife, Winifred Green.

SECOND GENERATION IN AMERICA was Moses Scott and wife, Elizabeth Shindler.

THIRD GENERATION IN AMERICA was George Shindler Scott and wife, Mary Hey.

FOURTH GENERATION

                               GEORGE4 AARON SCOTT, (George S.3, Moses2, Robert1) was born 13 July 1859, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, died 10 October 1945, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, burial Chapel Hill Cemetery, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana, married at the home of his wife, New Albany, Indiana, 29 December 1881, Anna Sarah Smith, born 29 March 1861, New York, died 4 September 1954, New Albany, Indiana, burial Chapel Hill Cemetery.

            George Aaron Scott’s parents were George Shindler Scott and Mary Hey. 

            Anna Sarah Smith’s parents were Furman Smith and Sarah Jane Curtis.

            George & Anna (Smith) Scott were married 29 December 1881 at her residence, 109 (West side) Bank Street, between Market and Spring Street, New Albany, Indiana by Rev. J. S. Woods.[1]  Her parents were in New Albany by February, 1868.[2]  The genealogy and family history of Furman Smith and Sarah Jane Curtis is available on this CD/DVD and was prepared by Nelson S. Scott.  The file is named SMITH-CURTIS.

              George Aaron Scott had the given name of his father and middle name of his maternal grandfather, Aaron Hey. George and Anna had a rural route address number; but today their old home place has been given the address of 6803 Starlight Road, Floyds Knobs, Indiana. Their home was located on the northeast corner of Starlight & Bethel Road intersection.  It faced Bethel Road which was laid along the north side of Big Indian Creek. They produced large vegetable gardens to supply food for their family and friends.  Some vegetables like corn, potatoes, and a variety of beans along with strawberries were grown commercially to sell at the Farmer’s Market in New Albany, Indiana.  They raised chickens, hogs, milked dairy cows and used horses to till the land.        

            Anna Sarah Scott was an expert at making cottage cheese and butter from cow's milk. They were sold at the Farmer’s Market.  William Dennes Scott remembered his grandparents, Charles and Ruth (Bartle) Scott baking one of George & Anna’s famous hams. Their hams were the best.  Bertha (Scott) Johnson remembered that when her parents had made enough money at the Farmer’s Market, then she was able to pay for her piano lessons in New Albany.  Their New Albany trips to sell produce and raise money from the products on their farm were major events in the life of this family. Those trips introduced their children to city life and culture.

            Anna Sarah (Smith) Scott was one of the few women who married a farmer and left New Albany to live on the backroads of the county.  Reared in New Albany, Anna had no farm skills.  After graduating from high school, she taught school a few months in Kentucky and then came back from that brief interlude of teaching to marry a farmer.[3]  As time went by, Anna made a success of farming and became a very capable mother to her children.  Anna was helped along the way by other Scott farm women and neighbors.

 

            George was tall; but, she was very small in stature.  They always sat together in the same pew at Chapel Hill Christian Church. He held the office of Elder in the church, devout, dedicated church leader.  In their child-bearing years, you could find a lavish meal at their home most every Sunday following worship.  Virginia Scott remembered going to her Scott grandparents when she was a child for Sunday dinner.  Virginia said that crowds of relatives and friends would be around the first table, the second table, and sometimes just sitting in a chair and eating with no table! Many adults came with carry-in dishes.  Those were great memories of family time and a melancholy sets in just thinking about those family times.  Grandma Anna cooked on Saturday in her kitchen building across the drive from the house and stored the prepared food dishes in the large cellar under the kitchen for the Sunday family feast.  Virginia remembered the cellar being large.  It was nearly as cool as a refrigerator.

            They worked their farm with utmost efficiency growing well-planned gardens and well-groomed orchards.  When about 4 or 5 years old, Nelson Scott remembered family gatherings at their home, the unusual small buildings to the back and side of their home for washing clothes, the smoke house shed for curing meat, smoking ham and bacon, and especially the kitchen building where most meals were prepared and where Anna made her cottage cheese and butter.  Late in life, Anna walked with a black cane, curved at the top.

            She graduated from New Albany Senior High School in 1878 when the school was at Bank and Spring Streets.  She was the guest of honor in 1954 for the New Albany Senior High School Centennial Celebration which included a Centennial banquet at the high school.  At the banquet U. S. Supreme Court Justice Sherman Minton was Master of Ceremonies when Anna was recognized as the oldest living graduate.  Anna was interviewed by either the Superintendent of the School Corporation or the Principal of New Albany High School upon this occasion.  The interview was recorded on an old 78 size record which at one time was in the possession of Bertha (Scott) Johnson.

George A. Scott’s Deed Documents

            Moses H. (Hey) Scott, eldest son of George S. and Elizabeth Scott, had received from his parents some portion of 60 acres, Southeast ¼, Section 31, Township 1 South, Range 6 East, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana.  Upon Moses’ death on 25 January 1879, the property was jointly inherited by Moses’ brothers - George A. Scott, John B. Scott, Robert Kay Scott, and William L. Scott. At the time of Moses’ death, George A. Scott was 21 years old; John B. Scott was 18 years old; William L. Scott was age 12; Robert Kay was age 7.  Actually, the property reverted back to their parents. On 28 February 1883, some portion of the 60 acres was conveyed to George Aaron Scott by his parents; however, some portion or some additional acreage in this Section 31 remained in trust to all other living children of George S. Scott.  In 1883 when George Aaron received this property the following persons quit claim: Elizabeth “Lizzie” (Collins) Watkins & husband, Walter G. Watkins; Charles F. Collins and wife, Frances Collins; James M. Collins, unmarried; Mary Collins, unmarried; Penelope H. (Scott) Loweth, and husband, George R. Loweth; and Mary Elizabeth “Lizzie” (Scott) Hale, husband, Theodore Hale.[4] It can be noted that William L. Scott, Robert Kay Scott, and Malinda Scott were unmarried, living at home with their parents and were not participants in the 1883 “quit claim” for George Aaron’s land.  Also, their brother, John B. Scott, did not participate in this “quit claim” because he had received from his parents, 60 acres, also located at the Section 31 site.  His 60 acres was adjacent to the land of his brother, George Aaron. John B. Scott died 25 September 1884 and the administrator of his estate, Jonathan Wade, (father of John’s widow, Carrie (Wade) Scott), sold this 60 acres to Nicholas and Frances Kiefer.[5]     

       What is not clear is whether George Aaron Scott was eventually forced to sell his 60 acres since it might have been a part of the trust land with other siblings or George’s land was exempt from any trust land with siblings.  On 21 November 1903, the above named persons who had quit claim along with George Aaron Scott, sold 60 acres to Herman Neahoff of Floyd County, Indiana.[6]  It is presumed by Nelson S. Scott that George Aaron Scott kept the 60 acres conveyed to him by his parents, which had previously belonged to Moses H. Scott.  Also, Nelson Scott has presumed that George Aaron gave some portion of his 60 acres to his younger brother, Robert Kay Scott.  Robert Kay Scott farmed land and had his home adjacent to George Aaron Scott. So, there was possibly another 60 acres at this same site which was held in trust by the siblings and sold to Neahoff. 

            Elizabeth “Lizzie” (Collins) Watkins, Charles F. Collins, Mary Collins were the children of Anne Eliza (Scott) Collins who was deceased at the time of this 1903 deed and James M. Collins was Anne Eliza (Scott) Collins’ husband.  Anne Eliza (Scott) Collins was the deceased sister to George Aaron Scott, Robert Kay Scott, and William L. Scott. Anne’s sisters, also quit claim on this sale: Penelope H. (Scott) Loweth and Mary Elizabeth “Lizzie” (Scott) Hale.  The only child who did not quit claim on this 1903 sale was Malinda (Scott).

            When George Aaron married in December, 1881, he and his brother, John B., were farming in conjunction with their parents about 180 plus acres.  When John B. Scott died in 1884, George and Anna as well as his parents were not interested in buying back the property which was owned and inherited by John B. Scott.  As William L. Scott and Robert Kay Scott became adults, it was apparent that only Robert Kay Scott was interested in farming.

            George S. Scott and wife, Mary (Hey) Scott, sold on 16 March 1888, 20 acres, East 1/2, Southwest 1/4, Section 31, Township 1 South, Range 6 East to their son, William L. Scott.  But, William was not interested in farming and went to New Albany, Indiana to establish his business.   William L. Scott and wife, Harriet R. Scott, on 16 January 1895, sold the same 20 acres to his brother, George Aaron Scott.[7]

Their youngest daughter, Bertha Elizabeth Scott was born 20 February 1903, thus not included in this census.

FIFTH GENERATION

5.10                 Edmund5 Kay Scott (George A.4, George S.3, Moses2, Robert1) was born 2 December 1883, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, died 15 January 1963, New Albany, Indiana, buried Kraft-Graceland Memorial Park, New Albany, Indiana, married[8] Mabelle Claire Perry, 8 p.m., Tuesday, 12 March 1907, Central Christian Church parsonage, New Albany, Indiana, by Rev. B. F. Cato.   Mabelle was known as Mabel, born 1888, New Albany, Indiana, died 16 October 1967, 511 Captain Frank Road, New Albany, Indiana, funeral service at Mullineaux Funeral Home, New Albany, Indiana, buried Kraft-Graceland Memorial Park.

          The names of Mabel’s parents were not available.  Surviving Mabel at time of her death was her brother, Henry Perry of New Albany, Indiana; her sister, Mrs. Charles F. Dunn, Lexington, Kentucky; her children, Sam Scott and Katherine Duer, and 4 grandchildren.

          Before their marriage, Edmund K. Scott resided at 1610 E. Elm Street, New Albany, and Mabel Perry resided at 611 13th Street, New Albany.  After their marriage, they resided at 1606 Shelby Place, New Albany, where their children were reared and later they moved to 511 Captain Frank Road, New Albany, Indiana where both resided at the time of their deaths.  Steve Scott, Edmund’s grandson, recalled that his parents, Samuel and Laverna Scott, lived next to Edmund and Mabel’s home on Captain Frank Road; but, Samuel and Laverna’s address was 2004 Valley View Road.   While Sam and Laverna were having their home built, they lived in the basement of Edmund and Mabel’s house.  When I-264 and I-64 were built, Samuel and Laverna’s home was taken as a part of the new interstate, so in 1964 they bought a farm house at 807 Binford Road, New Albany which is now owned by Steve Scott’s family and another home at this location is owned by Steve’s sister, Carol Scott.  Samuel and Laverna Scott’s Binford Road residence contained horse barns and grazing land for Laverna’s horses.         

          When about 18 years old, Edmund went to New Albany, Indiana, where he resided the rest of his life.  Some folklore has indicated that Edmund attended a business school in downtown New Albany and worked for the Kentucky and Indiana Railroad where he eventually became secretary and treasurer. He married at the age of 24.   Edmund Scott was a very astute person.    

          New Albany City Directory (1929-30), page 425: Edmund K. Scott, President, Floyd County Building and Loan Association, and secretary of Scott Seed Company. Also, Ibid., page 425:  Charles M. Scott, President, Scott Seed Company, boarder, 430 Beharrel Ave., New Albany. In 1930-31 New Albany City Directory, Charles M. Scott resided on Paoli Pike and the Scott Seed Company was at 108 West Main, New Albany, Indiana.

          When his brother, Charles, became President of the Scott Seed Company, Edmund left the railroad and served the seed company as secretary.  The first Scott Seed store was located near Main and State Street.  In 1929, Charles M. Scott was President of the Scott Seed Company and Edmund was secretary. Also, in 1929, Edmund was President of the Floyd County Building and Loan Association.   In 1930, the Scott Seed Company relocated to 108-110 West Main Street, New Albany, where it remained until 1942 when the business relocated to 709-733 East 4th Street, New Albany, where it contained larger facilities with warehouses. Edmund and Charles Scott remained in the company until their retirement.

          In September, 1946, Edmund was an elected Councilman from the 3rd District and served on the New Albany City Council.  The Council elected him Mayor Pro Tem in 1946 in order to fill the unexpired term of the deceased Mayor Raymond L. Jaegers.[9]  Mayor Pro Tem Edmund K. Scott served from September, 1946 through December, 1947. James G. Ferrell was New Albany City Clerk.  James served as the City Clerk from ca. 1938 through at least 1948.   He was a popularly elected official and served as City Clerk when his distant cousin, Edmund K. Scott was elected Mayor Pro Tem (1946-1947).  James G. Ferrell was a great grandson of Margaret (Scott) Ferrell, sister of Moses Scott.  Edmund K. Scott was a great grandson of Moses Scott.    

          Edmund’s obituary from the New Albany Tribune, New Albany, Indiana, 16 January 1963 reads:

          “A heart attack at 10:15 last night ended the full life of Edmund K. Scott, one of this community’s outstanding men.  He was stricken at his home at 511 Captain Frank Road at the age of 79.  An attack which he suffered last year left him in impaired health but it did not incapacitate him from some of the duties he had carried on for so long.  With Mrs. Scott he was to have left today to spend the winter in Florida.

          “At the time of his death, he was chairman of the board of the First Federal Savings & Loan Association which, with the late Edward J. Tighe, he established in 1925 as the Floyd County Building & Loan Association.

          “The guiding genius which he exhibited in business affairs extended too many other phases of civic, political and fraternal life in the city and county, making the impact of his passing a deep community loss.  With his business acumen, he combined a warm personality that brought human relationship into all his endeavors.

          “Locally, at least, a resume of the affiliations and associations of Mr. Scott would read like a “Who’s Who.”

          “He and Mr. Tighe established the financial institution in the old Indiana Theater building on Vincennes Street, a building now demolished.  As it grew, the business was moved to the old Liberty Bank building at Spring and Vincennes, thence to the Elsby Building, and finally to the home at East Spring and Bank, a business that today stands as one of the monuments to his ability, and the confidence the public had in him and his co-founder.

          “His life exemplified the busy executive who could find time to work for his church, his city and county, and any worthy cause that needed his aid and advice.

          “He was secretary of the Scott Seed Company at the time of death and was a member of the Central Christian Church.  As a religious man he was practical in the application of his faith, being a former trustee of the church for many years.

          “Mr. Scott was a former member of New Albany City Council, and at one time served an interim term as mayor of New Albany.

          “He was at one time a member of the advisory board of Floyd Memorial Hospital, and also was a former president of the New Albany Rotary Club.

          “He had been secretary and treasurer of the Kentucky & Indiana Railroad, a post he relinquished upon joining Scott Seed Company.

          “Fraternally, he was a 50 year member of the Jefferson Lodge Free and Accepted Masons, a member of the New Albany chapter No. 17 Royal Arch Masons, member of the Indiana Council No. 1 Royal and Select Masters, and the New Albany Commandery No. 5 Knights Templar.

          “Harry L. Doughten, president of First Federal Savings & Loan Association, who had been associated with Mr. Scott nearly all of his lifetime, described him today as “certainly one of this community’s outstanding leaders in every way.

          “He leaves his wife, Mrs. Mabel Perry Scott; a son, Samuel Scott, New Albany; a daughter, Mrs. Katherine Duerr, New Albany; brothers, George, Clark and Charles M. Scott, all of New Albany; a sister, Mrs. Florence Best, Floyds Knobs, and four grandchildren.

          “The body will be at the Mullineaux Funeral Home after 6 p.m. today.”

                    Edmund and Mabel Scott were active members of Central Christian Church, New Albany, Indiana where all their children were baptized.

5.11   Florence5 Jane Scott (George A.4, George S.3, Moses2, Robert1) was born 13 June 1887, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, died 9 June 1989, at the age of 102, Floyds Knobs, Indiana, buried St. Mary’s of the Knobs Catholic Church Cemetery, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, married about 1907, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, Jacob William Fredrick Best, nicknamed Will, born February, 1886.[10]

            Will Bests’ parents were Jacob Best and Margaretha Weisenberger.  Margaretha was from Lanesville, Indiana.  In 1875, Will Bests’ parents moved to Floyds Knobs on Scottsville Road, (back then the town was called Mooresville, Indiana), Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana.  They resided on 160 acres of rolling farm and timber land. They were the parents of 10 children.  Will Best’s sister-in-law, Catherine Best, helped rear the children of Jacob and Margaretha after Margaretha died from giving birth to a child on 22 June 1888. Catherine Best resided at times with Florence and Will Best as noted in the 1920 Federal Census listed below.

            Florence and Will Best inherited and purchased much of this farm at 4119 Scottsville Road, located on the west side of Scottsville Road.  They farmed the land, grew strawberries, and tended a large dairy herd.  They were members of the St. Mary’s of the Knobs Catholic Church.  Florence celebrated her 100th Birthday with a Family Reunion held at the Floyds Knobs Community Club on Saturday, June 13, 1987.[11]  At this celebration Florence had received a pictorial “Family Tree” of her life, beginning with the Scott and Smith “roots” and her marriage to Jacob William Fredrick Best of Floyds Knobs. Florence said that the Best Family had resided on the same farm for more than 100 years which was recognized by a Historic Marker on a tree at the driveway of their farm on Scottsville Road. 

            At this celebration, the following quotations were given by Florence as she told stories about her family’s contributions to Floyd County, “both at Atkins Chapel Church where Aaron Hey, a Scott fore-father gave the land for the building of the first church in that area - and her Grandfather Smith came from New York to New Albany to help establish the J.B. Ford Glass Works, which was one of the earliest industries in the New Albany area.”

            Florence continued to say that “The branches of their “Family Tree” are Evelyn Best of Louisville, Kentucky, who is a Registered Nurse, and Alois William Best, who resides on part of the original Best farm where he winters his Thorough-bred horses during the off season. Alois’ “pride and joy branches” are his Daughter, Mary Ann Duffy (Mrs. Richard), Grand-daughter Anita Duffy and Grandson Michael Duffy and Great-Grand-daughter Summer Duffy; and two Sons: Damon Best and Grandsons: William, James and Allen, and Grand-daughters: Karalynn Thompson, Brenda Kennedy, Janice Staser, Nancy Best and Misty Best; and Great-grand-daughters: Amber Best, April Best, Emily Thompson and Angela Staser; and Great-grandsons: Joey Schaefer, Niall Thompson, James Best, Jr., Timothy Best, Jeremy Kennedy, Joshua Kennedy, Jason Kennedy, Bradley Best and Dustin Best; and David Best and Grandson Thomas Best and Grand-daughters Mary K. Best and Michelle Best.”

            Florence’s obituary from the New Albany Tribune, New Albany, Indiana, Sunday, June 11, 1989, reads:

Florence Jane (Scott) Best, age 102, of 4119 Scottsville Road, died Friday at her home.  She was a native of Floyds Knobs and the widow of William J. Best.  She was a member of the Century Club of Indiana and St. Mary’s of the Knobs Catholic Church.  Survivors include a son, Alois of Floyds Knobs; a daughter, Evelyn of Louisville; a sister Bertha Johnson of Jeffersonville; three grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren and 16 great-great-grandchildren.  Visitation will be at Kraft Funeral Home from 6 to 9 p.m. today and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday.  Funeral services will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday at St. Mary’s of the Knobs Catholic Church with burial in the church cemetery.  There will be a prayer service at 7 p.m. Monday at the funeral home.  Expressions of sympathy may take the form of contributions to Mass of the Air.

            From 1921 - 1924, Charles was Secretary - Treasurer of the Emery-Scott Seed Company.  William L. Scott was President, Raymond C. Emery was Vice-President, and Charles M. Scott was the Secretary - Treasurer per the New Albany City Directories for those years.  William “Will” L. Scott was an uncle of Charles.  Will had owned a grocery store, 318 State Street, from about 1886 - 1915.  Around 1915, he changed his business into a retail and wholesale feed and seed store -- a business which served agricultural seeds for farmers to grow corn, soybeans, wheat, alfalfa and also garden vegetables.  The business also sold flour and dairy cattle feed. His sons, Isaac “Ike” G. Scott and Joseph Hey Scott, worked in the business. Then in 1919 the business relocated to 329-331 State Street, New Albany. Around 1921 a new partner, Raymond C. Emery, was brought into the business along with Charles M. Scott. By 1925, Raymond C. Emery had left the business.  By 1929, William L. Scott had left the business and temporarily formed a similar business, “W. L. Scott & Sons,” 320 West Main, New Albany, and in 1932, Will Scott moved his business to 1518-1520 Spring Street, Jeffersonville, Indiana, per City Directory of Jeffersonville and New Albany.  By 1929, Charles M. Scott was President of the Scott Seed Company.  Charles’ brother, Edmund K., held the office of secretary - treasurer.  In 1930, the Scott Seed Company relocated to 108-110 West Main Street, where it remained until after the 1937 flood which practically destroyed downtown New Albany. The Main Street building had the top two floors removed because of the flood damage.  The Scott Seed Company relocated to 709-733 East 4th Street, (4th & Culbertson), New Albany, where larger warehouse facilities could be used. Edmund and Charles Scott remained in the company until their retirement.  The Scott Seed Company expanded and grew under the marketing and sales work of Charles Scott. Through the years, the company supported numerous people in the families of Charles and Edmund Scott.

            Charles M. and Ruth (Bartle) Scott resided off Paoli Pike (State Highway 150) with the present-day address as 502 Kenzig Road, New Albany, Indiana. Kenzig Road was established alongside Interstate Highway 265, (the Interstate around New Albany connecting I-64 and I-65).   This home was located in the highland woods overlooking New Albany.  Their children were born and reared there. Their home was often the site of family reunions in the 1940s and 1950s.  Charles enjoyed growing lovely flower gardens and created a pond for watering his flowers.  Their home was one of the most “modern” residences in Floyd County during the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s.  They entertained business associates, church friends and civic-music organizations that they supported.  Charles and Ruth were members of the New Albany Country Club.  Adjacent to their home was also the home of their son, Charles Bartle Scott and his wife, Jane Kendrick Wolff.  Charles Bartle and Jane’s home was built on the present-day site of Windover Drive which intersects with Kenzig Road. Their home was the first home on Windover Drive, affectionately called the “Windover” home and street.  The street was probably named by Charles and Jane.

            Charles and Ruth were the parents of Charles Bartle Scott and Sarah Ann Scott.

5.14                 Clark5 Craven Scott (George A.4, George S.3, Moses2, Robert1) was born 21 June 1896, died 1984, Floyd Memorial Hospital, New Albany, Indiana, burial Chapel Hill Cemetery, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana, married (1) 26 February 1916, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana,[14] Cora Bell Nicholson, born 4 August 1899, Wood Township, Clark County, Indiana, died 2 July 1990, New Albany, Indiana, burial Chapel Hill Cemetery, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana; married (2) Violet M. McLain, born 16 June 1919, English, Crawford County, Indiana, died 26 December 1996, Providence Retirement Home, New Albany, Indiana, burial Chapel Hill Cemetery, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana. No children were born in Clark’s marriage to Violet McLain.

            Cora Bell Nicholson's parents were Zachariah Nicholson and Adaline "Addie" Fordyce.

            Clark and Cora were each reared on family farms. Throughout their marriage, they were a farm family. Following marriage, they leased a small farm on the north side of Fertig Road, ½ mile east of the Fertig Road and Stiller Road intersection, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana.  Their first child, Irvin Scott, was born at this location only a few miles west of the farm owned by Clark’s parents, George and Ann (Smith) Scott.  They purchased a 22 acre farm along the south side of Bannaman Creek and Chapel Hill Road where it

 intersected with Scottsville Road.[15]  The present day address for their home at that site is 8014 Scottsville Road, Floyds Knobs, Indiana, where their daughter, Virginia Scott, was born.  Their home was adjacent and north of the Crescent Hill Elementary School, (no longer standing but the present address for the old school is 7978 Scottsville Road.)  This elementary school was also called “Flea Ridge” school by local neighbors but it was actually named “Crescent Hill.”  Virginia Scott as a preschooler played with the school children and when the children went back into the school following their recess, Virginia would cry because she wanted to go into the school, too!  At the age of 5, she entered the first grade!  The school teacher, Vera McGuirt, took room and board in Clark and Cora Scott’s home. The village of Scottsville, Indiana was ¾ mile north of their farm. 

When they sold this farm, Clark took employment with the Scott Feed and Seed Company, New Albany, which was owned and operated by his brothers, Edmund and Charles Scott.  Clark and Cora resided at 302 E. Elm Street, New Albany, the home was actually on the corner of Third Street and Elm Street with the front of the home facing Elm. In early childhood, Virginia and Irvin Scott attended an elementary school in New Albany.

Clark and Cora Scott’s fourth home was at the northeast corner of the Chapel Hill Road and Louis Smith Road intersection, ¼ mile east of the Chapel Hill Christian Church and Chapel Hill School House.  The present day address of the fourth home is 6634 Chapel Hill Road. Clark purchased nearly 60 acres on the north and south side of the Chapel Hill Road.  He used horses to till the land, milked dairy cattle, had chickens and hogs, grew strawberries, owned wild blackberry patches, sold fruit, and Cora took vegetables from their garden and “canned” them for winter food.  Clark, like his parents, took his produce and crops to New Albany and sold them at the New Albany Farmer’s Market on Market Street from the back of their pick-up truck! 

Most people in New Albany bought “canned goods” and large supplies of fresh garden items from area farmers so they could store food in their homes during the non-growing season.  In the 1930’s, city dwellers had limited electricity, limited refrigeration, and limited tin can packaging, so most city people had to buy raw, fresh, bulk food products, then prepare them and “can” them for storage.

Clark and Cora’s children, Irvin and Virginia, completed their elementary school education through the eighth grade at the Chapel Hill School at the corner of Chapel Hill Road and Navilleton Road.  When Clark and Cora sold this farm about December, 1935, they leased a farm on the northwest corner of Interstate 64 and Highway 150. Their children, Irvin and Virginia attended New Albany High School with both dropping out.  Virginia quit high school in the middle of her junior year, December, 1935 and married Seibert Scott, March, 1936.  They were married at Park Christian Church, New Albany, in a Sunday morning ceremony before the worship service. Charles Manker Scott, who was a member of Park Christian Church, knew about their pending marriage that particular Sunday and following the ceremony, congratulated them on the church steps.     

Clark and Cora moved to New Albany and resided at 162 Cherry Street, New Albany. While living there, Irvin met his wife, Margie Schlageter, whose parents owned the Schlageter Nursery and Floral Business a few houses west.  They were married 22 April 1939.  Clark took a job with Donaldson Bakery, Louisville, Kentucky.  He drove a truck delivering baked goods, bread products and made house deliveries in New Albany and Louisville.  While delivering baked goods to homes, Clark met some interesting women!  Clark and Cora divorced while living at this home in 1938.  Afterwards Clark began a new career in real estate. His real estate office was 155 East Main Street, New Albany and was called the Clark Scott Real Estate Firm.   Above the real estate office, Clark had his living quarters.  Following his divorce from Cora, Clark remained single and only married after his retirement, Violet McLain. Clark and Violet resided at 103 W. Cottom Avenue, New Albany, near the home of Irvin and Margie Scott.

Clark and Cora (Nicholson) Scott were the parents of Irvin Scott and Virginia Scott.

The Johnson family resided on the Borden Road just north of the Floyd County line (Smith Road) in Clark County, Indiana. 

           Bertha E. Scott and Julius J. Johnson were married at her parent’s home by Rev. George Henry, minister of Chapel Hill Christian Church.

            Bertha was close to her brother Clark Scott.  Clark’s daughter, Virginia Scott, spoke of Bertha as her favorite aunt.  Virginia and Seibert Scott often visited with Julius and Bertha through the years.  Bertha Scott was reared in the Chapel Hill Christian Church and following marriage, they resided near Bertha’s parents on Bethel Road.  Bertha and Julius then moved to New Albany where they resided on Shelby Street and took membership at Central Christian Church, New Albany.

          Four children were born to Bertha Scott and Julius Johnson:

FOOTNOTES


[1] The 1877-78 New Albany, Indiana City Directory, (R. L. Polk & Company, Taylor, Michigan),  page186, reported Sarah Jane Smith resided west side of Bank between Market & Spring and that she was the widow of Furman Smith.  Furman Smith died between his entry in the 1870 census and this entry in the New Albany City Directory.  Other New Albany City Directories named the address as 109 Bank Street for Sarah and her children.

[2] The 1868 New Albany, Indiana City Directory, (R. L. Polk & Company, Taylor, Michigan),  page126, listed a Fuman (misspelled)  Smith residing at East side Upper 6th Street, 3 North Water, where Furman and Sarah Jane first resided in New Albany.  They sold that home and moved to 109 Bank Street.
